Hello Product Hunt!

I've spent the last 2 and half months on this iOS app that would essentially be the book itself, and also be that app that you learn to design and code in Swift 4! My passion has always been to teach designers how to code and use Sketch. There's currently a discount for the pre-order!

Feel free to ask me anything!

An awesome learning resource for those, who want to start with iOS design & development. I think it's the most comprehensive and fresh learning resource on the web right now 🌟 Highly recommended!
Meng ToMaker@mengto · Designer
@lisadziuba The updates will be extremely fresh this time, with iPhone X, Swift 4, Xcode 9, and Sketch's new Libraries just around the corner. I intend to keep the materials updated, and possibly go beyond with ARKit and React. – Thanks Lisa!

Great for beginners or people that live in the backend like me and want to get into iOS design :p
Meng ToMaker@mengto · Designer
@nafetswirth The book is definitely geared towards designers and beginners who have little to no coding experience. There's a strong focus on layout and animation. Every step is very visual, followed by both images and videos. I'm a designer myself, so I try to reminisce the way I learned when I first started and build the course around that experience.

The facination and lusting over everthing apple continues. The world does not run one apple is it disappears. Do somethinf worthwhile for humanity instead of a rabid fan of iOS 11. Steve Jobs never waisted time being a fanboy or fangirl.

@androidlove As mentioned in the video, I might do Android later. The knowledge of Swift to other languages is definitely transferrable. I was able to learn React very quickly because it had a lot of similarities to Swift. I'm sure Android won't be a problem with React Native or Java.

@androidlove Your criticism is totally misguided. Meng has invested countless hours to produce a substantial and practical educational resource. That is something to be celebrated and supported, irrespective of the platform.

bought it!
Meng ToMaker@mengto · Designer
@rohillion Very much appreciated! :D

@rohillion @mengto bought it as well, or pre-ordered, as this might be a lifesaver for me having a competitive edge as a UX-designer. I'm "old" for a newby in the tech scene. I'm in love with Sketch for years, getting my feet wet with front-end stuff right now, but not enough to land a job. Also Meng, did you have a look into Vue.js? I was looking into Vue.js because they are partnering up with Weex (Ionic for Vue.js) which in turn is heavily backed by Alibaba, and Evan is personally overlooking the implementation of Vue.js 2 in Weex. React and Vue have similar ways of working, but Vue is aimed more towards developers while making onboarding easy for newcomers. What you then basically have is a course with the latest Sketch techniques, the latest iOS technologies, plus using the latest javascript framework that uses native technologies on iOS, Android and the web :)
Meng ToMaker@mengto · Designer
@guus_hoeve I've looked into Vue, but not tested it as thoroughly as React. Vue feels closer to Angular while React feels more like Swift, which I like, even though I spent more time developing for Web in my career. Also, I get way more requests for React than Vue. But I see merits in both.
Guus Hoeve@guus_hoeve · keydrop.co
@mengto Sounds great anyway! I'm sure people will like this course and heared much great things already. Will you also be covering SVG implementation and animation for iOS development? I've seen Spring but would like to create more technical art right out of Sketch, and animate the SVG-code straight away. Last but not least; also like to learn something together. Will you be hosting a dedicated Slack channel or Dribble hashtag so people can view each other's work and learn together?
Meng ToMaker@mengto · Designer
@guus_hoeve Great feedback. I will cover briefly some prototyping tools that allows animations before diving into Swift. It won't be specific to SVG though, since that's more Web or Android related. Yep, that's the plan. I want to use Spectrum for sharing works, getting feedback, etc. Feel free to start topics there to gather the community around that idea. :)
